If you have not owned a pet before, please read the top of this page to be sure that adopting a pet is the right goal.
If you do want to adopt a pet, it is likely you are either an experienced pet owner or a new pet owner. We are happy to work with both.
If you are an experienced pet owner, you probably have a good idea the type of pet you are seeking, and their needs. If you provide a vet reference and are legally able to have the pet in your home, the process should be quick.
If you are a first time pet owner and are looking to adopt your first cat, it may take some time to find the best cat for you. Some cats are more social than others. Which do you prefer? Some dogs are couch potatoes and some want to go to the dog park every day. What works for you?
Required Basic Pet Care
Our adoption contract requires a basic level of care be provided to each pet.
Food And Water
Indoor Pet, Sleep Indoors
Heartworm Prevention (Dogs)
Flea Prevention (Dogs and Cats)
If The Home Lacks A Fence, Must Not Be Restrained Outdoors Unsupervised Except For Brief Periods Such as Bathroom (a leash or tie-out is not a dog babysitter)
Annual Wellness Veterinary Checkup
These are difficult economic times. Some pet owners find it difficult to provide the pet care they would like to provide. However, fleas and heartworm pose serious, life threating problems which can be easily prevented at a cost of a few dollars per month.
Quality pet care does not always require spending more money. One of the best diets for a dog can be raw food, if properly planned, and costs less than a quality dog food. For more information on dog health visit DogAware.com
Many veterinary groups now recommend reduced vaccine schedules for dogs and cats. Reduced vaccine costs can be used for wellness checkups and other preventative measures.
Our adoption fee is $50.
